Transcripts, References, and Language Proficiency Assessments Applying to the BEd Program — Step 3


If you have completed all course work when you apply please send official sealed copies of all transcripts directly to TEO.

If you are enrolled in courses from September – December, submit a transcript with course grades in January. This transcript will also show proof of registration in any January – April courses.

If you only need to submit proof of registration for course work beginning January onwards, you should check with your institution as to how you can provide this proof.

Acceptable proofs of registration (which should contain course number, your full name, and dates) include:

  • an email from the institution, direct from registrar’s office or originating from registrar’s office and forwarded from student
  • confirmation of enrolment produced from the institution’s Student Information system and emailed to us as a PDF file
  • an official transcript showing courses in progress.

All course registration confirmation must be provided by April 15 (earlier if possible as we will be sending the bulk of offers in late March throughout April). Proof of registration in summer course is the only documentation we will accept up until April 15. All other documentation should have been submitted ideally by the priority deadline of January 31 but no later than March 31. Your file will not be evaluated until we have acceptable proof of registration.

Once course work is completed (including grades and degree conferral), send sealed official transcripts directly to the TEO as soon as possible. If you have been given a conditional offer of admission, send official transcripts no later than August 31.

UBC transcripts do not need to be sent to us.

If your official transcripts are issued in a language other than English or French, you must also submit official English translations.
  1. Bring or mail a sealed official transcript to the Teacher Education Office where it will be stamped, photocopied, and returned to you.
  2. Get a certified English translator to provide a literal translation of your stamped transcript. Academic records must be translated in their entirety, including information on the reverse side(s) of all documents.
  3. Translator sends both the photocopy of the original transcript and English translation in a sealed envelope to the Teacher Education Office
If you do not live in the Vancouver area, we require an official transcript to be mailed directly from the institution to the Teacher Education Office. Please inform us that you are requesting one to be sent from the institution. Our admissions team will mail the stamped transcript back to you.
